It’s been quite a while since I had the opportunity to visit this place. Back when my son, Josef was still learning how to drive, we used to come here just to take a look at the different plants displayed in the many stalls . One time, we found a cacti shop and I was really, really overjoyed looking at the varieties of cacti sold at the area.The Manila Seedling Bank is an environmental NGO which was founded in 1977. It’s a seedling producer and over the years so many plant stores have sprouted like mushroom here. I am a member of Green 2000 so I get a little discount when I buy seeds and garden supplies here.
You couldn’t help but admire the different herbs and medicinal plants grown here. There are so many varieties of Basil. Lavender, Mint, Sage, and Lemongrass.
These are Mints of different variety. How I wish I have all of these in my own little garden.
In one of the stalls we visited, they have Lantana in varied hues, water plants,and different vines. I was able to buy two pots of blue iris here.
We saw this garden center and I was elated to know that their plants are all labeled. I asked the owner if I could take some shots and she gladly said to go ahead. I promised her I’ll write something about it.
Bing bought a pot of Kampupot, a double layered bloom, this is what we usually know as sampaguita.
Marigold and caladiums mixed with spathiphyllum plants.
Hanging ferns in different varieties and sizes. Wish I could bring all of them home.
We visited Purificacion orchids. These are Phalaenopsis Orchids or simply called Butterfly orchids. They actually cost an arm and a leg and depending on what variety, they can go up as high as P800.00 per pot.
Amaryllis, anyone? They sell them for P150.00 per pot.
These are dwarf sanseverias. Wow, I have plenty of these, maybe I ought to find a buyer someday. hehe…
The pink mums are so beautiful. I would end up with empty wallet if I buy these on a whim.
Mums in pots and in different colors. So eye-catching!
Saw these beautiful blooms of variegated poinsettia but they were labeled “not for sale”.
Mums in wonderful colors. They are sun-loving plants and they thrive well planted directly in well-irrigated soil.
Don’t you just wish you have these beautiful white Chrysanthemums in your own garden?
Showy plants, aren’t they? I simply love their different hues.
I forgot the name of this bell-shaped flower, I think they also belong the the family of lilies.
Stargazers, they are my favorite flowers and it takes quite a while for them to bloom.
The gardener says this is a new breed of petunia, its variegated flowers are simply beautiful.
They call her the Hydrangea lady or is she the Mums Lady?
These are Geraniums, bought a pot for my garden.
Can you see the water fountain here? Nice, isn’t it?
I’ve been dreaming to buy these since I saw them at Caleruega, so I bought four pots in different colors. They are called Celosia.
So can you identify these plants?
Orchids and Lilies
Wow, so many colors of impatiens!
These are horsetail, used to have them in my garden.
Entrance to one of the gardens there. It reminds me of a Secret Garden, you don’t know what is in store and discovering the place is simply a delight.
Hanging petunias in bloom!
Nice garden seats, how I wish I have one…
